My guild (The Risen - Thorium Brotherhood US) has done another Ironman Challenge that's not as... let's say, "unforgiving" as this one (which sounds incredible, btw).It's based around dungeon-running. You pick a character and start naked in the lowest-level dungeons available for your faction, and can only use gear acquired through running dungeons. You must complete the dungeons sequentially (i.e. must complete lower-level dungeon before moving up to the next level dungeon, can't skip dungeons) and must take screenshots of your character and their character sheet at the end of each dungeon. You cannot group with people who aren't also running the Ironman Challenge, so we usually wind up with two or three "teams" that run dungeons and farm gear together.The winner is the first player / group to complete all the 5-person dungeons in the game, or who gets the farthest by the end of the challenge period (~1 month, maybe longer).

This is the version I'd heard of before, too. It's something I've meant to get around to doing some time, because the idea of genuinely checking old loot for upgrades sounds fun. As a paladin, I know I can manage some Cata normals with my proper gear... will be interesting to see how far I can push without (I'm thinking the ICC 5-mans might be an issue).

So, you take a naked level 85 into RFK? Sounds like fun. I could be down with that.

I heard a Guild Master mention that back in TBC, except that version was "run a low level instance naked. You can equip what you pick up. Let's see how many we can do."Always wanted to try that one.
